Vehicle Description

1941 Ford GP # 9223. ┬áThe 1941 Ford GP, as well as the Bantam BRC and Willy’s MA were pre-WW2 limited production models, often labeled as “prototypes” which developed into the common WW2 GPW and MB. The production of the Ford GP, which is very unique to itself, was approximately 4500 units with most going overseas. It is estimated that only a few hundred of the GP’s exist today, most of which are in the hands of collectors. Of the total, it is estimated that less than 100 are restored, with the vast majority of the balance being as non-restorable and in dire condition. The problem is that the original (NOS) parts are very difficult to find, expensive, and quality reproduction components are limited. Therefore a GP that is complete, clean and in operating condition is in high demand. This GP, # 9223, is considered an early model series one GP, one of 1500 of the first series. Restored over 30 years ago by an active member of the MVCC (Military Vehicle collectors of California) and sold to the previous owner of over 20 years in Montana. Genuine GP engine # 9547 and drivetrain were rebuilt at the time of restoration. Runs and drives great. Smokes a little when cold but clears up once warm. Brakes and steering are very nice. This GP checks all the boxes with correct top, trailer with canvas, all of the blinkers , reflectors, extinguisher, flashlight, engine crank handle, and correct lighting. Museum Quality example of an extremely rare piece of American History.
